Always one of the star crus bourgeois, Chasse-Spleen has produced a 2003 that manages to combine the rich, ripe fruits of the year with the right tannins and sweetness, along with blackberry fruits. It has the elegance and delicacy of Moulis, as well as some good intensity of flavor.
Soft and voluptuous with plenty of red and black currant fruit notes intermixed with licorice, spice box and underbrush, this well-made, medium to full-bodied 2003 has good precision and freshness.
Very dark. Some strange wood on the nose -- a bit like eastern European oak. Attractive sweet fruit on the front palate and quite notable acidity. Then tough, dry tannins. Very grainy finish. Long. Lots of life.
Lots of blackberry and dark chocolate on the nose. Full-bodied, with fine tannins and a fresh, fruity aftertaste. Very delicate style for the vintage.
